The Gong is the Secret Instrument of the Yogi 

The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. The Gong produces a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell. There is one caveat when it comes to the gong: Once you enter the gong’s healing sound orbit, you may never want to leave!

What are the advantages of the gong?

According to Akalsukh Singh, founder & executive director of AquarianYoga Center in Montclair, NJ, here are some of the major benefits:

  • Relieves neck pain, headaches, menstrual cramps, muscle pain, and improves joint flexibility and range of motion

  • Creates deep relaxation and clears the mind

  • Immediate reduction of stress and anxiety

  • Stimulates the glandular system and improves function

  • Stimulates circulation

  • Organizes emotional energy

  • Aids in breaking addictive behavior

  • Regenerates neurons and their interconnections

  • Regenerates the nervous system

  • Clears the aura

  • Opens and aligns the chakras

  • Clears the sub conscious mind from negative thought patterns

  • Strengthens the parasympathetic nervous system

  • Helps repair damage to the nervous system caused by stimulants (i.e. coffee) and stress

  • Encouraged integrated healing of body, mind, and spirit

Primordial Breathwork Practice &amp; Crystal Bowl Meditation
May

10:30 AM10:30

Primordial Breathwork Practice & Crystal Bowl Meditation

This is a multidimensional experience, encompassing many facets of our being. It is very helpful for the reactivation of our energetic chakra vortexes to their natural, higher vibrational frequencies. The practice also aids in the location and elimination of psychosomatic sources of disease, tensions, inhibitions and repressed emotions. It employs an ancient, healing breath, activating and purifying our emotional memory at the cellular level.

This practice is rooted in an indigenous and shamanic Amazonian perspective. Its distinct benefits are the synchronization of the breath with awarenesssound and cyclical rhythm, which ultimately reveals the pulse of life force in nature as an infinitely diverse and unified consciousness.

We will provide raw cacao or drinking chocolate. Cacao is a powerful plant medicine that can increase blood supply to the brain, help to facilitate deeper energetic and emotional release, and increase connection to energy flow and heart space. In this way the cacao supports us in deepening the journey with the breathwork. It is best not to eat 2 hours before, a smoothie or juice is fine.

There is no fee for this practice. Please consider a donation to our Karma Yoga (selfless service) Program. The funds raised are used to prepare a meal for those at the recently built Willamette Center Shelter in our neighborhood.

Sat Nam, community! 

It has been such an honor to gather and build our sacred sound healing space for this whole year. 2018 has been a challenging and powerful time of transformation and learning for many of us. I know that our gatherings, the power of meditation and the vibrations of sound healing have helped to hold space for each of us in our own unique way. I am excited to seal this year with blessed company for all those who can join.

One of the pieces of our final gathering for the year will be to lay to rest all that we do not wish carry into the New Year. We will also honor anyone who has passed this year and invite peace into our hearts and souls with their passing. If you have a loved one who has transitioned this year and want to bring a picture of them, I welcome you to add this to our altar for he evening’s meditation. 

Grace and Love,
Isabel

Primordial Breathwork Practice & Meditation

This is a multidimensional experience, encompassing many facets of our being. It is very helpful for the reactivation of our energetic chakra vortexes to their natural, higher vibrational frequencies. The practice also aids in the location and elimination of psychosomatic sources of disease, tensions, inhibitions and repressed emotions. It employs an ancient, healing breath, activating and purifying our emotional memory at the cellular level.

This practice is rooted in an indigenous and shamanic Amazonian perspective. Its distinct benefits are the synchronization of the breath with awarenesssound and cyclical rhythm, which ultimately reveals the pulse of life force in nature as an infinitely diverse and unified consciousness.

We will provide raw cacao or drinking chocolate. Cacao is a powerful plant medicine that can increase blood supply to the brain, help to facilitate deeper energetic and emotional release, and increase connection to energy flow and heart space. In this way the cacao supports us in deepening the journey with the breathwork. It is best not to eat 2 hours before, a smoothie or juice is fine.

There is no fee for this practice. Please consider a donation to our Karma Yoga (selfless service) Program. The funds raised are used to prepare a meal for those at the recently built Willamette Center Shelter in our neighborhood.

Sat Nam, community! 

It has been such an honor to gather and build our sacred sound healing space for this whole year. 2018 has been a challenging and powerful time of transformation and learning for many of us. I know that our gatherings, the power of meditation and the vibrations of sound healing have helped to hold space for each of us in our own unique way. I am excited to seal this year with blessed company for all those who can join.

One of the pieces of our final gathering for the year will be to lay to rest all that we do not wish carry into the New Year. We will also honor anyone who has passed this year and invite peace into our hearts and souls with their passing. If you have a loved one who has transitioned this year and want to bring a picture of them, I welcome you to add this to our altar for he evening’s meditation. 

Grace and Love,
Isabel


The Gong is the Secret Instrument of the Yogi 

The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. The Gong produces a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell. There is one caveat when it comes to the gong: Once you enter the gong’s healing sound orbit, you may never want to leave!

What are the advantages of the gong?

According to Akalsukh Singh, founder & executive director of AquarianYoga Center in Montclair, NJ, here are some of the major benefits:

  • Relieves neck pain, headaches, menstrual cramps, muscle pain, and improves joint flexibility and range of motion

  • Creates deep relaxation and clears the mind

  • Immediate reduction of stress and anxiety

  • Stimulates the glandular system and improves function

  • Stimulates circulation

  • Organizes emotional energy

  • Aids in breaking addictive behavior

  • Regenerates neurons and their interconnections

  • Regenerates the nervous system

  • Clears the aura

  • Opens and aligns the chakras

  • Clears the sub conscious mind from negative thought patterns

  • Strengthens the parasympathetic nervous system

  • Helps repair damage to the nervous system caused by stimulants (i.e. coffee) and stress

  • Encouraged integrated healing of body, mind, and spirit

Sat nam!
